Final Mission of A2C Steven H. Adams

At 11:01 AM on October 18, 1966, a HU-16 Albatross (serial #51-7145) departed Da Nang Airbase, Republic of Vietnam, to rescue a downed pilot in the Gulf of Tonkin off the coast of North Vietnam. The crew of the aircraft consisted of rescue commander and pilot MAJ Ralph H. Angstadt, co-pilot 1LT John H.S. Long, flight mechanics SSGT John R. Shoneck and TSGT Robert L. Hill, radio operator SSGT Lawrence Clark, and navigator CAPT Inzar W. Rackley Jr. Also onboard the aircraft was A2C Steven H. Adams, a parajumper/frogman and a member of an elite pararescue team ("PJs"). The aircraft headed to the pilot's location, which was approximately 80 miles off the China coast in the northern sector of the Gulf of Tonkin. Two A-1E Skyhawks escorting the rescue aircraft remained on station until the mission was completed, then the Skyhawks returned to the base. The last contact with the HU16 was at 5:45 p.m., and at that time, there was no indication of any trouble. The Albatross was returning to base, and last contact was approximately 35 miles off the coast of North Vietnam. All contact was lost with the amphibious aircraft in marginal weather conditions, and although an extensive search for the aircraft was conducted, there were no sightings of the crew or the aircraft. Even though the HU-16 was believed lost over water, the men on board were not declared killed, but Missing in Action. The crew of the UH-16 received promotions during the period they were maintained Missing in Action: Angstadt and Rackley were promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel; Long to the rank of Captain; Clark and Hill to the rank of Chief Master Sergeant; Shoneck to the rank of Senior Master Sergeant; and Adams to the rank of Master Sergeant.

For Steven

To the Family of S.Sgt. Steven Adams,

When I was in junior high school in 1970 or so, my Uncle Marty put a POW/MIA bracelet on my wrist, just before he departed for his second tour of duty in Vietnam, and I wore it as often as I could. Steven's name was on my bracelet. Please know that I prayed and hoped that he would always return to you. Since that time, I have visited the Wall in Washington, D.C. with my uncle twice.

I graduated high school in 1975, thankfully the year that the war ended. You can find me at: Cindy Lou Vroman, Windsor Central High School, Windsor, New York. I changed my name to maternal grandfather's first name in 2004.

You can find more information about me at my user page on Wikipedia, at: USER:CMINARD.

May God grant you peace, and please know that I will always remember Steven fondly.

With best wishes,

Cindy
